alert weather radar and you could see the showers moving in. steve sosna is timing out the rain and possible snow early next week. steve? >> that is right. we're all over the place with the weather. hopefully you enjoyed the mild weather today. temperatures up around 60 here in philadelphia. and here are the three bullet points i'm tracking. we have rain overnight for everybody. but then the rain begins to shift to the south and east on your sunday. so areas like the jersey shore and delaware beaches, you have the greatest likelihood of rain. monday looks quiet but tuesday light snow especially western sections in the afternoon. but i think a greater storm is up here on friday. that one has the potential of laying down some snow. and maybe some accumulating snow here for a good chunk of the area, more on that in a second. but a live look outside in wilmington. feels anything but like snow out there. 56 degrees the current temperature. and the wind out of the south, southwest at 14 miles per hour.
and philadelphia a temperature in the mid to upper 50s. a march like evening. so heading out you don't need your jacket. 53 in allentown. 50 in coatesville. and 56 in dover and mid-50s at the jersey shore. so enjoy the nice weather while it lasts because it won't last. 52 for tomorrow. that is a little bit cooler. comes with the trade off of clouds and morning showers in philadelphia. 48 degrees, a nice day on monday. and then tuesday and wednesday we drop back into the lower to middle 30s. i don't think we recover much of next week. so once we do cool down, we'll be in the cool air for quite sometime. but overnight lows are on the mild side. 47 in philadelphia. 39 in allentown. 47 in vineland and even 47 down in south jersey. watching the radar the last couple of hours, noticing these green filling in. that is light sprinkle activities. nothing heavy but enough to put the windshield wipers from time to time during the overnight.
the steadier batch of rain is around state college toward pittsburgh into west virginia. this whole band of rain, while not very intense, it is steady and pretty consistent. so we'll see that rain coming in here during the overnight hours. waking up on sunday morning, you early risers dealing with showers and maybe an umbrella as you head off to church. brunch-goers, north and west is cloudy during the lunchtime hour. but down to the south and east, notice how the green is consistent. it is steady and it continues to the evening. so have the umbrella from atlantic city toward cape may and from south of wilmington toward rehoboth beach and then kicking out by the time we get into monday. temperatures tomorrow in the lower to middle 50s. not as mild today. don't expect to see any sunshine like we saw during the day today. again your greatest chances of showers south and east. so let's look at the super bowl outlook for anyone that is headed up to minneapolis. now again the game is indoors but you have to walk to and from
the stadium. looking at maybe flurries, 10 degrees at 6:30 and then a balmy 2 degrees at the end of the game. so it looks chilly. i'll have your full ten-day forecast at the end of the day. this is sports desk. brought to you by xfinity. x-1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. thank you very much. danny pommels with you. we are 4568 half way there. this is the longest two weeks eagles fans have experienced but the countdown is on. but the work is done here. they leave for super bowl lii tomorrow and they prepare to fly away and put wheels up, if arriving in minneapolis will make this experience for real for the birds. >> right now we're just anxious. really just to go ahead and continue to prepare and get ready for this game. but definitely when we get out there, it will feel like it is
real now. let's get ready to play for real. >> when that moment comes, it will really be [ inaudible ] but at the same time when you step on that plane, i think everybody is going to get into that mindset that we are here. rob gronkowski participated in the practice. the media was allowed to see but still not cleared concussion protocol. and brady talked about heading into his eighth super bowl after practice. >> i've never taken anything like this for granted and i think we're all very fortunate to be in this game. it is hard work to get here. it makes it great when you go down and play great. being part of the tough losses is tough to swallow but you have to put in effort to prepare. it is a unique environment and unique game and you have to be at your best but in order to do that you have to prepare as well as you possibly can. >> claude giroux the flyer working this weekend at the all-star game in tampa.

temperatures. 52 on your sunday. showers mainly south and east of the city. by around lunchtime tomorrow. monday looking at a nice day at 48 degrees. tuesday a little light snow in the afternoon. that is not a big system but just enough that maybe messy roads here in the afternoon and evening hours. mid to upper 30s. and then our next more sizable storm could be on friday. that is groundhog day. and 40 degrees for punxsutawney phil as he popped out of his hole and into super bowl weekend, it looks like maybe a messy travel on sunday. that is not a big storm but some wet snowflakes and showers possible. temperatures in the 40s. >> that little off and on. that clearing -- >> a little bit of everything in the forecast. >> steve, thanks. and that is an 10 news for now.
